Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Acronis Backup is easy to use.""It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface.""The solution is exceptional for desktop backup.""The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware.""For local backups, it has options to back up almost any storage. The back can be either a shared folder or anything you want, it's pretty flexible.""One of the features I have found most valuable is the restore point - it gives us what we need at the time we need it. The important thing is that the backup for Acronis doesn't depend as much on the device.""It has simple buying options and deployments. You can buy on-cloud, on-premises, or hybrid solutions. Acronis Backup is very easy to deploy. It also does not consume much hardware. The administrator's tasks are very simple. It is very user friendly, and it also has good security features with low-level encryption and data encryption.""The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup."

"The feature that I like the most is the system backup recovery from OneDrive.""The most valuable feature is that we don't need different agents to back up our files from different accounts.""The solution is easy to use and stable and can be made to fit one's needs.""One of the valuable features is the ability to restore a specific email. For example, if a user has deleted an email and they would like that particular email back we are able to restore it.""One of the main features of the solution is it is easy to use.""The product offers good stability.""The most valuable feature is the integration with our Teams environment.""Its ability to restore at the item level is very valuable. It is very strong at that. In the past, we had to restore a lot of data only for a couple of items. We can now restore an item as well as an email, which is good for productivity."

Cons
"There are some limitations to the backup.""The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth.""When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration.""The biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang.""The solution could improve by providing more database backup features and have better integration with many different types of databases. We cannot implement it in all of our infrastructures.""For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain.""When an error occurs, the information is not always easy to understand and these messages should be made more clear.""When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking."

More Acronis Backup Cons »

"The solution could offer better reporting.""They can provide a dashboard for sizing. This feature might get included in the next release.""The solution should have backup integration features, not just concerning mail but also when it comes to such solutions as SharePoint.""When you are working in the Cloud security is very important.""It's hard to predict the usage on the storage. I need to make some estimates for customers in terms of how much storage will be needed on the cloud, and this is always tricky. It would be helpful if they could help us estimate storage or simplify the estimation portion.""We would like to have a single management console for all of our backups.""The pricing model is unnecessarily confusing and could be simplified.""When you add a new site for backup, it gives you a notice that there is a new site, but the way you select that and configure that could be slightly better. It works, but it is not always very clear. For example, for the URL, you need to hover over the title or the name of the site. You should see it immediately on the screen. It should have a better user interface for selecting what you want to back up so that you get a more clear overview of the sites that are there and the ones that you want to combine in a backup. Its user interface should be more user-friendly. It has a lot of scrolling and doesn't give you a complete overview when needed. That's the main thing why it is not very user-friendly. It should have a better user interface."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a license required to use this solution and it is inexpensive. However, it is an old license.""Its price is quite friendly on the pocket. You need to pay the licensing cost upfront, and then the support charges are on an annual basis.""The price is reasonable.""The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro.""You pay for what you use in the cloud. If you don't start the virtual machine in the cloud, you only pay for the information stored there. But when you start the virtual machine, another pricing model is activated.""We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers.""The pricing is reasonable. However, it depends on the storage that you use. It would be great to have a package that we can use up to a certain size of the backup, this would allow us to know what the price is going to be up to that capacity.""It is very cost-effective for the SMB segment, especially for start-ups and smaller environments. It is cost-effective for on-premises and on-cloud deployments in such environments."

More Acronis Backup Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Its price is a little bit high, but it is a fantastic solution. It is more expensive than NetApp.""There is an annual license required and a per-user fee for this solution.""It is strictly subscribed on a per-user basis.""It is not the cheapest solution in the market.""This is not a stand-alone product and requires a standard Veeam license for your organization in addition to the cost of the solution.""We decided on Altaro because, from the point of view of the total cost, Altaro looks cheaper than Veeam. Veeam has a lot of costs that are not clear when you start it, which makes it less flexible than Altaro, but only after half a year, you can be really sure that you made a good decision.""The pricing model makes this solution more expensive than it needs to be.""The licensing price is quite high. It's expensive."
